McFarlane figurine shows Deron Williams in new Nets gear

Keywords: deron williams, nets

 

This image is of the new Deron Williams figurine that is being released by the McFarlane toy company. The problem is, no Brooklyn Nets uniforms exist yet. Now these figurines have been around for years which means there is a high possibility that this is the actual Nets uniform. If it is, this would be the second time this week that someone let a teams jersey designs slip. Just a few days ago NBA 2k13 accidentally showed a video featuring the new Knicks design.




Harper’s Bazaar launches it’s new look with the March 2012 issue!

Keywords: harper’s bazaar, new look, gwyneth paltrow

Over the past century and a half Harper’s Bazaar has undergone some serious makeovers. The most recent makeover is revealed with Gwyneth Paltrow looking GORGEOUS on the cover of the March 2012 issue. In addition to the new type font and  styling of the cover, the paper is said to be noticeably thicker and the issue is thicker as well. I personally adore the subscribers cover (the first image). Which do you like better?

Check out the cover of the first ever issue of Harper’s Bazaar which was released in 1867. They’ve come a long way baby!




Former coach Isiah Thomas recently met with Knicks owner James Dolan

Keywords: james dolan, isiah thomas

 

The past decade and a half has been ugly for fans of the New York Knicks. One of the lowlights of those years was the Isiah Thomas sexual harassment scandal, along with his dismal performance as coach of the Knicks. When the Knicks hired Donnie Walsh to put the roster together, the Knicks started heading into the positive direction that we see them still going in today. But owner James Dolan just couldn’t stop his obsession with Isiah, and as the two continued to meet, Walsh opted to leave the circus at the Garden. Last Friday Dolan and Isiah met once again. The Daily News says the meeting about a position for Isiah, who is not quite ready to come back to the NBA.

 

“Isiah is very close with Jim Dolan but he’s told me that he’s not ready to jump back into the NBA just yet. There’s this perception out there that Isiah is desperate to get back, but that’s false. I think it will eventually happen but just not now.”

The New York Post also reported on the meeting:

“The Knicks declined comment on the meeting other than to offer it should not be construed as significant that Dolan and Thomas, who have maintained a friendship, had a business meeting. With an eventful summer filled with a series of roster additions, Dolan may well have wanted to pick Thomas? brain on his new team.”

Whatever the reason for the meeting one thing is for sure. Jimmy Dolan will always be the thing holding back the New York Knicks. He is a man of the money and he is in it for himself. Notice how once he let Glen Sather actually do his job for the Rangers that they finally became a powerhouse. As long as Jimmy runs the show he will continue to bring in washed up veterans, much like he did with the Rangers of a decade ago.




Excuse me,  your skeletal frame is showing.

Keywords: models, fashion week, skinny models

Reading about the events that took place at Fashion Week (we hadn’t launched yet, otherwise we would have been all over it), and I came across this picture.  It was just in the Google image bank that I snagged it from-  be my guest and take credit to whoever took the picture- but jeese,  what’s going on here?   I know the modeling industry is demanding and competitive.  And I know they prefer tall skinny stick figures-   But there isn’t a single pair of healthy legs in this whole bunch!   Check out the pale girl with the blue top!  That’s terrible.  I am so glad my fashion involvements never included any type of modeling or behind the scenes within the industry, cause something tells me it’s a shady business to keep up with.




Why did Bulls fans go home disappointed after a 99-95 win over the Hornets?

Keywords: mcdonalds, derrick rose, bulls

MVP Derrick Rose had 32 points and 9 assist as he led his Bulls to a win over the New Orleans Hornets. After the game, Rose apologized to the fans….YUP. With 4 seconds to go in the game Rose missed a free throw that would have gotten the Bulls their 100th point of the night. 100 points in a Chicago home win means free Big Macs for the fans. But Rose’s late game blunder kept the fans from getting their priceless McDonalds fix. Kirk Hinrich has also had this situation happen to him as a member of the Bulls. He was booed unmercifully, Rose managed to get off a little bit easier and of course it was all in good fun. I was also fortunate enough to find a picture from when D-Rose was on the McDonalds All American team, like it was destiny.




Rachel Zoe’s first ever sample sale kicks off tomorrow!

Keywords: rachel zoe, sample sale

Rachel Zoe’s recently launched fashion collection has been widely accepted and pleasantly surprising to the fashion world. She has done so well that she is adhering to the unofficial initiation as a fashion designer in hosting her first ever sample sale.

If you are looking for some Rachel Zoe approved clothing for up to 60% off, head over to 260 Fifth Avenue (my favorite sample sale location!) to check out the designer duds. Word on the street is that the clothes are still a little prices (starting around $100), but who knows what you may find there? It is definitely worth stopping by!




If I didn’t know any better I would have no idea that this jersey represented a Hawk

Keywords: jersey of the week, atlanta hawks, mint green, pistol pete

 

The mint green color scheme along with the blue doesn’t really make me think of a Hawk. Actually I have no idea how this color scheme of jersey even represents Atlanta. Now the jerseys I am talking about are the reverse of the one pictured. This smooth shot of Pistol Pete Maravich was too good to pass up though. The Hawks used one with a base of mint green with the blue stripes and the one pictures which has mint green stripes. It may not even actually be mint green, but saying mint green just makes it seem like an even odder concept. And once again, I still do not see what this has to with a Hawk.
